Well another Mets season is winding down and yet again this organization has more questions to ask themselves than answers. This off season looks like it will be busy one – I doubt that there will be a lot – if any new big ticket players making their home in Flushing, but with that said I think there will be moves made.
So with just 9 scant days left to this season here are some of the thoughts that have been rattling around in my dense skull.
If the Mets run the table and win the rest of their games, they will finish with a record of 79-83. Even if they finished 75-87 it would probably surpass most fans pre season’s expectations.
If I had the choice of trading either Ike Davis or Lucas Duda – I would have to deal Duda. I just feel that he can flourish away from the brightlight’s of New York.
Kelly Shoppach looks a lot like Mike Pelfrey with a beard !!!!!
After last Friday’s apology to his players, I feel that Terry Collins should be reassigned within the organization and possibly promote Wally Backman as the new Mets manager.
The Pat LaFrieda Steak Sandwich is my new favorite delicacy at Citi Field.
Citi Field is starting to look and feel like M. Donald Grant’s Tomb.
Jon Rauch should take up professional wrestling once his baseball career is over.
Matt Harvey is the real deal – now if the offense can only give him run support.
Sandy Alderson is doing the best job that he can do with the limited budget that he has been given.
The Johan Santana deal – even though it is a bust on paper in my opinion has been a success – not that he has lived up to his contract ( we all know he certainly has tried too.) – but because he gave us our first “magical moment” at Citi Field .
The Party City Deck was a stroke of genius.
R.A Dickey is more than deserving of the Cy Young Award ( but I admit that I am biased)
And lastly Fred, Jeff, Unky Saul – PLEASE SELL THE TEAM !!!
And with that said… HERE COMES THE INFAMY !!!!
Mets alumni celebrating a birthday includes:
Spot starter/middle reliever from the ’66 season, Bill Hepler is ’67 (1945). In his lone season as a Met, Hepler had a record of 3-3 witha E.R.A of 3.52 in 37 appearances.
Middle reliever from ’02-’04, Dave Weathers is 43 (1969).
Reserve infielder from the ’08 and ’09, seasons Argenis Reyes is 30 (1982). Reyes was nothing moe than a AAAA caliber infielder, but he played well enough to win the heart of Mets fans in ’08. He lost our hearts in ’09 though.
Mo Vaughn often pondered the notion of making the Bow Wow Wow song “I Want Candy” as his walk up theme music !!!!
